Difference Between Emsculpt Neo and Emsculpt

If you want to sculpt your figure and target stubborn areas without surgery or significant downtime, Dallas Dermatology Partners offers the latest non-surgical body contouring. When it comes to fat reduction and muscle growth, both Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo deliver amazing results, but there are some key differences between the two technologies.

Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo Overview

Before we delve into the differences, here’s an overview of these FDA-approved body sculpting treatments. Both systems melt fat and build muscle mass simultaneously by mimicking the benefits of intense strength training.

Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo can be used to lose fat and gain definition in the following areas of the body:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Flanks
  • Arms
  • Upper legs
  • Calves

Both non-surgical treatments use high-intensity electromagnetic pulses, which cause the muscles to contract. Patients can expect to see noticeable improvements in treated areas after four sessions. In addition, there is no downtime or lengthy recovery involved. Temporary muscle fatigue is the most commonly reported side effect.

How is Emsculpt Neo Different?

Technology is the key difference between Emsculpt and the newer Emsculpt Neo. While Emsculpt relies on high-intensity electromagnetic pulses to tighten and tone, Emsculpt Neo combines this with radiofrequency (RF) energy. This dual technology allows patients to contour and reshape problem areas faster.

Emsculpt Neo is an ideal choice for men and women with higher BMIs (up to 35) who are looking for greater body fat reduction. Radiofrequency energy boosts blood circulation and increases muscle contractions for maximum efficiency.

Benefits of Emsculpt Neo

Emsculpt Neo has a broad appeal in increasing muscle tone and expediting fat loss in targeted areas. Clinical studies underscore the many benefits of this body contouring system:

  • Emsculpt Neo Increases muscle mass by 25 percent compared to Emsculpt’s 16 percent
  • Emsculpt Neo produces 24,000 muscle contractions in a single 30-minute session compared to Emsculpt’s 20,000 contractions.
  • Emsculpt Neo can result in up to a 30 percent subcutaneous fat loss compared to Emsculpt’s 19 percent.
  • Slimming and toning results can be maintained through a healthy diet and exercise.
  • Increased muscle definition and fat loss are evident within a few weeks of the first treatment.
  • Treatment sessions are not painful, and no anesthesia is required
  • Muscle improvements also enhance workout performance

All skin tones are suitable for Emsculpt Neo, so whether you hope to lose that “menopause middle” or target exercise-resistant love handles, this next-generation device is a safe and effective solution.

How Does Fat Leave the Body After EmSculpt Neo?

How Does Fat Leave the Body After EmSculpt Neo?

Once the EmSculpt Neo fat reduction treatment induces the death of fat cells, these fat cells are then ingested by immune cells and removed from the body through natural processes. It is an effective way to reduce fat in areas such as the stomach, hips, and thighs.

In addition, the body does not produce new fat cells. Once the treated fat cells are destroyed and eliminated from the body, they cannot come back. However, the fat cells that still remain can grow larger due to dietary imbalances. This is why it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after you undergo a fat removal treatment.

A quick look at fat cells

Fat cells, or adipose tissue, first begin to accumulate during the latter stages of fetal development. After birth, the number of fat cells remains stable until puberty, at which time people begin to form additional fat cells.

Following puberty, the body stops producing new fat cells. With dietary imbalances, the existing fat cells can expand, which leads to additional fat accumulation. When a person begins burning more calories than they consume, the fat stored within the cells is used and begins to decrease.

It is a common misconception that doing targeted exercises, such as crunches and sit-ups, will burn fat in the targeted areas. Although the exercises will indeed boost muscle growth, they cannot spot-reduce fat accumulation. However, EmSculpt Neo can do both.

Here is how it works.

How EmSculpt Neo destroys fat cells

EmSculpt Neo works in two ways. First, it uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) pulses to induce contractions within the muscles.

These contractions change the structure of the muscles, causing them to become stronger, tighter, and more toned. It’s as if you did thousands of sit-ups or squats. In this way, EmSculpt Neo can create a toned silhouette more effectively than mere exercise alone can.

Second, EmSculpt Neo applies radiofrequency (RF) energy to the treatment area. The RF energy targets the fat cells and heats them to up to 44 degrees Celsius while leaving non-fat cells alone. The heat destroys the fat cells, enabling them to be naturally processed and eliminated by the body—for good.

How destroyed fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body

So, how exactly are destroyed fat cells eliminated from the body? Well, first, as the fat cells absorb the heat from the RF energy, they undergo apoptosis, which is a type of cell death. The body is quite effective at removing any type of dead cells. It has to be, since dead cells that are not cleared away can lead to inflammation. These cells are cleared from the body by phagocytes.

Phagocytes are immune cells that are responsible for, among other tasks, circulating throughout the body’s tissues in search of foreign invaders and dead cells. Apoptotic cells display so-called “find me” signals, enabling phagocytes to find and identify them as unwanted cellular debris. When they find cellular debris (or microbes), the phagocytes engulf these unwanted materials.

The phagocytes undergo cytoskeleton rearrangement in order to internalize the dead fat cells. They then ingest the “meal” using enzymes, causing the degradation of the dead fat cells and enabling them to be removed from the body.

What exactly does all of this scientific information mean for your aesthetic goals? Quite simply, it means that EmSculpt Neo is highly effective at destroying unwanted fat cells. Unlike many other fat reduction treatments, however, EmSculpt Neo simultaneously tones muscles in the treated area.

Can EmSculpt Neo Make Your Waist Smaller?

EmSculpt Neo is highly effective at inducing fat loss and stimulating muscle development around the waist. Although individual results vary, some may lose an inch or more from around their waist. EmSculpt Neo is a new and exciting FDA-approved treatment. It may be ideal if you’re interested in non-invasive body contouring at Dallas Dermatology Partners without significant downtime.

What is EmSculpt Neo and how does it work?

If you have areas of stubborn fat around your hips and stomach, you might have considered liposuction. It is highly effective at removing fat in targeted areas; however, it is a surgical procedure that requires major downtime. In contrast, EmSculpt Neo is a nonsurgical lipolysis procedure that produces enviable body contouring results.

It directs high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy at the treatment areas. While many body contouring treatments remove fat cells, HIFEM energy works by triggering rapid contractions of the muscles in the targeted areas. At the same time, EmSculpt Neo delivers targeted radiofrequency (RF) energy, which gently heats the area to induce fat cell death. Note that the original form of the technology, EmSculpt, used only electromagnetic energy. The newer incarnation, EmSculpt Neo, uses both EM and RF energy.

What is possible with this body contouring treatment?

EmSculpt Neo offers incredible results. This body contouring treatment provides the following benefits:

  • Core Strengthening – Want toned abs without having to do crunches? EmSculpt Neo could be right for you. You’ll enjoy more toned, stronger muscles. In addition, a stronger core provides better support to the back, which is important for individuals with back pain.
  • Fat Reduction – Once the fat cells die off and are naturally eliminated by the body, they’re gone for good. Your body cannot grow more fat cells. However, existing fat cells do have the potential to grow larger, so you’ll need to maintain your results with a healthy lifestyle.
  • Inch Loss – Along with melting fat in the targeted areas, you’ll love that the treated areas become noticeably slimmer. Patients may lose an inch or more, although individual results will vary.

Who is a good candidate for EmSculpt Neo?

EmSculpt Neo is effective at helping individuals lose fat and inches from their waist, stomach, and love handles. However, like liposuction, it’s not intended to be a primary weight loss method. Instead, its purpose is to shrink, tighten, and tone the problem areas that do not respond well to a healthy lifestyle. Talk to a dermatologist to find out if you could be a good candidate for EmSculpt Neo.

Can QWO Get Rid of Cellulite on Thighs?

Qwo is a cutting-edge injectable that has been FDA-approved for reducing cellulite in the buttocks. Here at Dallas Dermatology Partners, many of our patients ask if Qwo can also be used to treat dimpling and orange peel texture on their “saddlebags.” The answer is yes! With precise injections and lower dosages, our dermatologists can treat cellulite in the thighs and buttocks. While Qwo thigh treatment is technically off-label, it is a simple and safe procedure when performed by a skilled dermatologist.

What is Qwo?

Qwo is an enzymatic solution that breaks down collagen that accumulates in the fibrous septa. These dense bands are responsible for creating the dimpled or cottage cheese-like surface typical of cellulite.

Qwo for thighs treatment

Our patients love Qwo cellulite treatment because it’s non-invasive, virtually painless, and produces amazing results for smoothing contour irregularities caused by cellulite.
Our dermatologists will mark the injection sites on your thighs and apply a topical anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort. Qwo injections in thighs are gentler and less painful than Botox– thanks to the extra padding in this area. We inject each cellulite dimple, and the entire procedure is over in around 10 minutes.

Side effects of QWO cellulite treatment on thighs

The risk of adverse side effects after getting Qwo on thighs is minimal. The most common side effects are temporary redness and soreness at the injection site and itching. These issues usually resolve within two days, and any bruising will fade over the following week.

Qwo downtime

After having Qwo injections in the thighs, patients can expect mild soreness that can be alleviated with ibuprofen or acetaminophen. For the most part, you can resume normal activities and even hit the gym. In this regard, there is no recovery or downtime after a Qwo treatment.

When will thigh cellulite go away?

You may note improvements as soon as one month after your Qwo injections. Expect to see smoother, dimple-free skin on your thighs about 2-3 months after the treatment. Remember that it takes time for the enzymes to break down the fibrous bands. Most of our patients benefit from two or three Qwo sessions.

How long does QWO thigh cellulite treatment last?

Qwo addresses the root of cellulite and is designed to be a long-lasting– if not permanent– treatment. Since Qwo is new to the market, anecdotal evidence on the longevity of results is still being determined. However, early studies have been promising, and after two or three sessions of this powerful injectable, you will probably be cellulite-free for the rest of your life.

Summer is just around the corner, and if leg and thigh cellulite is keeping you out of your favorite shorts and swimwear, now is the time to book your Dallas Dermatology appointment. With our expert guidance and technique, you can be beach-ready and confident in just a few short months.

Can You Get Rid of Cellulite?

Women are much more prone than men to develop cellulite, which develops when connective cords that tether the skin to muscle pull down or stretch, pushing underlying fat cells against the skin. The result is a puckered or dimpled appearance that typically shows up on the buttocks and outer thighs.

While there is a genetic component to cellulite, there is no single cause. However, as producers of the fat-storing hormone estrogen, over 90 percent of women are predisposed to this common problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re heavy or thin, exercise daily, or adhere to a strict vegan diet– you can develop these pesky dimples on the lower body– and there’s no shame in wanting to get rid of it.

If cellulite on the thighs and buttocks is bothersome, you’re not alone. Can you get rid of cellulite completely? Unfortunately, no. But there are some effective, non-surgical procedures, such as QWO, at Dallas Dermatology Partners that can reduce it and improve the appearance of puckered and uneven skin.

Cellulite treatment for legs & buttocks

Diet and exercise have their place but do little for smoothing contour irregularities on the buttocks and legs caused by dense fibrous bands. For a smoother derriere, we turn to QWO (Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum) — the first FDA-approved injectable to treat moderate to severe cellulite. Our dermatologists are thrilled to offer QWO cellulite treatment to minimize contour irregularities on the buttocks and upper thighs.

How does QWO reduce cellulite?

QWO contains two powerful enzymes that break down the collagen fibers in the septae (fibrous bands) that produce the dimpled appearance of cellulite. These enzymes also stimulate collagen production that improves the integrity and smoothness of the skin.

The injections feel like a bee-sting and take around 15 minutes. There is little to no downtime, and optimal results are seen after 3 treatments, spaced 21 days apart. Bruising, redness, and tenderness are the most common side effects of QWO cellulite treatment for thighs and buttocks.

Ideal candidates for QWO treatment

Our board-certified dermatologists know how to treat cellulite on legs and buttocks and can determine the best candidates for QWO injections. Generally speaking, those with pronounced dimples caused by fibrous strands rather than loose skin are good candidates for this non-invasive treatment.

Skin laxity vs. cellulite

The injectable does not address skin laxity that can mimic the wavy appearance of cellulite. How do you differentiate between age-related loose skin and true cellulite? Lift the skin from the indentation or depression. If the dimple disappears, it is not cellulite.

If skin laxity is the issue, our dermatologists can address this with Genius RF microneedling that combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with fractional radiofrequency energy. In fact, microneedling for tightening skin is safe, non-surgical, and produces noticeable results within a few sessions.
